Sahara Centre plans noble event for Ramadan
Sharjah, August 27, 2008
Sahara Centre said it will host various activities, including a chance to win a Hummer H2 SUT, as part of its Ramadan promotion from the first week of September.
Sahara Centre's 'Spreading the light of happiness' event marks the beginning of a noble initiative during the Holy Month.
The event includes identifying about 30 to 40 wishes from needy children, enclosed in an envelope and placed in the promotion area, on the 1st level in the mall.
On picking up an envelope and fulfilling the wish, every customer will be given a lit lantern that will be later mounted on a crescent shaped board placed near the donation area.
With each progressing night, a new lit lantern will brighten up the mall, spreading the light of happiness during the Holy Month. Each participant will get a coupon and the chance to enter the draw and win a Hummer H2 Sport Utility Truck.
Sahara Centre has also re-organised the Ramadan Charity Auction this year. Three cars - Optra, Aveo and Epica - will be auctioned in the mall.
To further build the excitement and festivity, a Hummer H2 SUT is also up for grabs for a raffle draw. Customers spending Dh200 ($54) at any outlet in the Centre are entitled to enter the raffle.
Jean Pierre Nammour, managing director of Sahara Centre, said: "Ramadan is a month of sharing and giving. We at Sahara Centre always ensure that these thoughts reflect in all the promotions that we organise. Like always, this year we are embarking on 'Spreading the light of happiness' campaign by way of helping children who are less fortunate than us. Through this campaign we are moving a step forward in restating our commitment to the society." - TradeArabia News Service
